Fernando Alonso does not have a problem with Felipe Massa despite him ignoring Ferrari orders.

Fernando Alonso is adamant that he does not have a problem with teammate Felipe Massa despite him refusing to obey Ferrari orders.

In the early stages of Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix, the famous red car are thought to have told the Brazilian a code over the team radio which translated as asking him to let the Spaniard pass him.

Massa ignored this demand although Alonso doesn't think that the issue is a very big deal and holds no grudges.

"We cannot make a big thing out of it," Alonso told reporters. "We are racing and whatever we did we would have finished in the same position because we could not achieve anything more. I don't know exactly what happened, but there is zero problem.

"We are trying to do our best fairly - me, the team - to score as many points as possible and sometimes it is not easy when the performance is not super. It is never easy when we are fighting for seventh and eighth place."

Massa will leave Ferrari at the end of the season.
